Thor has one, so I figure Captain America was about due a similar thread. What are the comics and graphic novels that every Captain America fan should read? I'll start the ball rolling: Captain America Omnibus This hefty tome collects issues 1-25 of Ed Brubaker's landmark run on Captain America, and has a couple of bonus one-shots and a bunch of extra content crammed in for good measure. For those of us who missed jumping in on Brubaker's run at the ground floor, this is the perfect catch-up tool, made even better by oversized pages with glossy, high-quality paper. A great collection of a great story. And from there, the next step is obvious: The Death of Captain America: The Death of the Dream The Death of Captain America: The Burden of Dreams The Death of Captain America: The Man Who Bought America It all might seem a bit redundant now that we know Steve Rogers is coming back, but it's anything but. This epic story is what finally sold me completely on Captain America, and by taking Steve off-stage, Brubaker was able to make a powerful statement on what he means to the Marvel Universe.
